Red Friday, Our Military, and AmericanDuckie

“Travelers scowl at us, and countrymen give us scornful names. “Strider” I am to one fat man who lives within a day’s march of foes that would freeze his heart or lay his little town in ruin, if he were not guarded ceaselessly. Yet we would not have it otherwise. If simple folk are free from care and fear, simple they will be, and we must be kept secret to keep them so.” ~Aragorn, Lord of the Rings
 
Remember the days of old, consider the years of all generations. Ask your father and he will inform you, your elders and they will tell you.  Deuteronomy 32:7

Salute

Usually when I write, I like to find a quote that best suits the topic because a lot of times others have said it better.  I had a hard time coming up with one this time, because even as I write, I’m not sure what I’m going to write.
